The purpose of the Master of Arts in Ministry to Women with Biblical Counseling is to equip students with the essential tools for service in the local church in both women’s and biblical counseling ministries.

Courses will provide an overview of biblical womanhood, insight into counseling, teaching and discipling women and girls and instruction in the practical outworking of the Christian life. The program will also provide opportunities for guided experience through a supervised field ministry requirement, thus enabling students to apply the knowledge gained in the classroom. Admission to this program is limited to women holding a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent who also meet all other admission requirements for the seminary. This degree can be completed through a combination of online and hybrid courses. Students can live where they serve and still get a robust theological education.
